Jack Beauregard, once the greatest gunslinger of the Old West, only wants to move to Europe and retire in peace. But a young gunfighter, known only as "Nobody", idolizes him and wants to see him go out in a blaze of glory. He arranges for Jack to face the 150-man gang known as The Wild Bunch and earn his place in history. Written by
Composer Ennio Morricone spoofs his own earlier Sergio Leone-helmed "Man with No Name" film scores with an over-the-top soundtrack, including shrill choral voices and a warbling whistle interwoven with a tinny recurring passage from Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries". Also the soundtrack reuses part of "Frank"'s theme from Once Upon a Time in the West for the shootout sequence. See more »
The photographer is shown using flash powder to illuminate the gunfight; since the shootout takes place in bright daylight, this is unnecessary, and wouldn't give enough light to be useful at the distance shown anyway. See more »
I see it clear as crystal. Jack Beauregard standing alone, facing the Wild Bunch. Just think of it. You'll be written up in all the history books.
You'll be down on Earth reading them while I'm up there playing on a harp.

This is one of my favorite spaghetti westerns. Terrence Hill is very good as the brash newcomer, and Henry Fonda has always been good.... in this, he is excellent as the tired gunslinger who wants to hang it up.
The score by Ennio Morricone is outstanding.
The premise of the story is that Fonda, Jack Beauregard, wants to retire. He even has a berth on the ship "Sundowner," destination Australia, reserved. "Nobody," Hill, wants Beauregard to go out in style.... so he creates a showdown with the Wild Bunch: one man against 150 of the meanest SOBs in the West. The resolution of this conflict is.... interesting. ^_^
